SY Westland

Together we prepares and serves delicious high-quality meals based on local produce. Spend time by the fireplace in our saloon: read, relax, share stories and make plans for the next day. Sleeping cabins are small but cozy and comfortable. In the evening we dock the boat in charming villages along the fjord and wake up in beautiful surroundings ready for a new day of adventure.

There are two saloons, one in the pilothouse and one underneath deck. Westland have a large generator who supply us with electrisity for lights and charging your laptop and phones. We also have free wifi onboard.

About all our trips

First note! All explorers must help out with some "work" onboard, like prepare breakfast / dinner and hoist the mainsail. Westland is not a cruise boat but more likely an expedition boat. It is important that every explorer has the right expectations and understands our concept correctly.

Second note! This very first season, 2020 we only have group booking from 4 - 6 explorers. It is important for the atmosphere onboard that our guests know each other. Also, it is important for our mountain guides that the ski & hike level of the group is about the same.

Spectacular videos from amazing Nordfjord

Powder skiing mount Skåla

Skåla - this imposingly beautiful giant of a mountain - towers over the village of Loen in Nordfjord, and is considered one of the most spectacular mountain walks in Norway.

Mountainbiking in Gloppen

Thomas Vanderham and Remi Gauvin have both been to Norway before, but it’s one of those places that keeps drawing them back. With newly built mountain bike trails with a strong historic culture of moving through the mountains, the Nordfjord region has endless opportunities for adventure.

Surfing in Hoddevik Stadlandet

Watch Pro surfers Gony Zubizarreta (Volcom) and Marlon Lipke (RVCA) travel to Lapoint surf camp in Hoddevik (Stad) for an extraordinary adventure in Nordfjord, Norway. Between tall mountains, breathtaking nature and ancient Viking settlements, they scored waves and memories of a lifetime.

Nordfjord is situated between the largest mainland glacier in Europe and Norway’s wildest coast at the western cape, with spectacular mountains and valleys, rolling farmland and a dramatic coast line. Here, you are never far away from great, accessible travel experiences.

Nordfjord Moments with Fred Syversen

10 years ago, free-rider Fred Syversen jumped off a 107 meter high a cliff. And survived. The record-breaking jump is considered to be one of the craziest cliff jumps on skis in history. To mark the anniversary we gave him a different challenge: 107 moments in Nordfjord – one per meter, all in one weekend.
